Lyrics
The evening stars shine brightly
Over Heaven's Cove
As night descends in silence
The faded scene unfolds

Consumed with trepidation
Arhys hears his brother's voice

As you're facing the path that divides
Ah, I will always be here by your side

I feel my pulse begin to raise
Beads of sweat drop down my face
I have made a grave mistake
What have I done?
My blood for my son

It's not too late
I won't betray him

I knew the day had come
And you could be tempted
To give up the chosen one
And finally end this
Do anything for your son
A terminal weakness
Now you're as good as done

I didn't have a choice
And I was defenseless
I didn't believe his voice
The fighting was senseless
But now I can see the truth
I've got to my senses
I shouldn't have trusted you

Arhys was never aware
His son had followed them there
Confused and deathly afraid

X watched his hero be brave
On the path that divides
You were there by my side
There will be no betrayal tonight

I've found courage and strength
In the words you once sang
Taunting truth from the lies on the path that divides

You dare defy the prince?
Well you just threw your life away
Along with Xander's dreams
You chose the wrong man to betray

Two holy warriors clash in the shadows of the night
But that's the cost with every fight
And Arhys' fight for her
Cost him his very life
